There's been visible progress since I last took a picture from the same location so I thought that I'd post one from today to show the difference.
The access is coming on as well but as it was a tad busy there I decided best not to get in the way to take a picture.... perhaps save that for a sunny evening when it's quiet.

It was a nice enough evening to have a quick look at the access works to the station after the orange clad ones had gone home and take a few pictures.
The excavations and landscaping are beginning to make sense now and hopefully a spell of drier weather will help accelerate the process.....the recent prolonged period of wet conditions can't have helped.  Anyway here's two photos of the works plus an overview shot of how the bridge and platforms are shaping up.

Took a look yesterday when it was quiet to view the progress.  The main visual changes now centre around the access work being undertaken at the bottom of Station Road.  It's beginning to look a lot less like a bad day at The Somme with the bulk of the soil/mud excavation now seemingly completed and the installation of supporting structures being evident.

As usual, a few photos.

Thanks for your updates here, johnneyw  Wink

William Huskisson MP (Member of Parliament) was the first person to be killed by a train while crossing the tracks, in 1830.  Many more have died in the same way since then.  Don't take a chance: stop, look, listen.

"Level crossings are safe, unless they are used in an unsafe manner."  Discuss.

Ten days of pretty decent weather since my previous visit has produced further progress, as is hopefully demonstrated by the pictures below showing further news excavations and the construction of supporting walls.
I also managed to find a more helpful vantage point to take the photos from.
